Art Appreciation!

I am so lucky to be surrounded by so many talented people who inspire me! I love to visit people's blogs and see what they are up to everyday. Two of my favorite artists recently had art giveaways and guess what?... I won!

Meet Brenda Pinnick






Both Brenda and Robin are artists who are not only masters of their craft but are also brilliant business women as well. I learn something new from them everyday! Thank you both for the gorgeous Giclee prints. How did I get so lucky?

Melanie has been busy creating too. She made this beautiful plate embellished with an applique fabric center and also completed another project that she has been working on for 5 years...





... an amazing wool embroidery!


Her stitches are just perfect. This piece is large measuring 15 x 18 framed.

I had alot of fun framing it for her as I used to be a picture framer many years ago. :)

I am so lucky to know so many wonderful people and get to appreciate their individual talents. It makes amy life a wonderful place to be!

Have a great weekend everyone!
